    Perimenopause with Dr. Carley Akehurst, ND (Judy Blume didn't prepare us for this!)

    Perimenopause with Dr. Carley Akehurst, ND (Judy Blume didn't prepare us for this!)

    This episode is quite the departure for the show and was born out of some Instagram stories around perimenopause, when I realized- hey, we all seem pretty uninformed! And more scary - way too many people are tuning into their fave influencers for peri content, which is becoming increasingly monetized. While I personally got my puberty education from the legend that is Judy Blume and a few school health classes, nothing like this quite exists for perimenopause. While we're starting to get more...

We cover everything from trad wives, gatekeepers of the 'good mom aesthetic,' the economic and cultural value of mom...

    Princess Catherine's Cancer Announcement & Scandoval's Reality Reckoning: What Treatment of Women in the Media Tells Us About Ourselves

    Today’s pod was meant to focus strictly on the reality reckoning and the aftermath of Vanderpump Rules explosive Scandoval that took over the pop culture zeitgeist a year ago. But, in light of Princess Catherine’s video announcement yesterday sharing the news of her cancer treatment, this podcast became something bigger. We’re going to be looking at not only how media treats women and how we’re complicit in it, but what that says about our own values and expectations on what it means to be a ...

Deep diving what really matters

Do you ever feel like you come across someone online and think “we would totally be friends in real life?” When I heard in an episode Mahsa state her love for Veronica Mars, I knew I found a place to tune in. I’ve always felt like the pop culture things I find fascinating don’t resonate with anyone else. Then I found this podcast. Easy, insightful, funny, thought provoking and in tune with what’s happening currently. Well laid out and executed and makes me feel like I’m just listening to/having a conversation with friends.

Fantastic podcast!

All of the episodes I’ve listened to have been so well done and so interesting. They are well thought out and researched thoroughly. I have a particular interest in influencer culture. And I like that Mahsa is asking the questions that so many have been wondering about influencers for such a long time

Fabulous, juicy and well researched!

I love listening to this podcast and just diving into how pop culture really shapes so much of our lives. Insightful, witty and critically thought out. Amazing.
